Only the location! Plus friendly front-desk staff.
Honestly, the hallways look quite disgusting! I can not believe how dirty and outdated those carpets are... overall, this place needs a full renovation. Besides, I have found several little ants in my bed in my first day. If you have a little one traveling with you, please take this warning into serious consideration!! Pool including its “entrance” is also horrible.
Body hair and dust all in room. Stained sheets. Very dated hotel .
The location and the breakfast were great. What I wanted was a banquet breakfast but the extra variety of the Continental Breakfast was good, wholesome and more than adequate.
The rough unpainted empty space when looking out the one small window. But for me it added a bit of nostalgia. At 75 years of age, I recall the empty space, ground to roof line in the first building I worked in in Sydney. The electric light was not very strong then and many of the old buildings of the era had a space such as this, called a "Light Well" in the middle of the building. The desk workers often had their desk against the window for better light. So the little bit of history added to my stay and I was able to tell my grandchildren who visited me in the hotel about the history of the "Light Well". So for me, the negative became a positive. Maybe the management of the hotel could put up a small notice in the rooms facing the "light well", telling the history of the unusual outlook from the window. That would compensate for the rough look outside the window in the rooms that had this outlook.
The girl at the reception was super helpful and helped me book my great barrier reef snorkeling trip n messaged to arrange transport and gave me alot of recommendations. She was the pretty girl with glasses and the beautiful smile : )
Overall, pretty good and would stay here again.
PROS: - Excellent location that is central to everything - shops, cafes, bars, supermarket, esplanade, lagoon, marina where lots of the boat trips depart from. - Affordable - Has everything you need - bed, bathroom, TV. - Good shower pressure.
CONS: - Quite noisey due to the location being right in the heart of the city. We used earplugs which helped us to sleep. - I'm not a huge fan of the king size bed being two singles pushed together, although I know this is what a lot of hotels do. - It's nothing fancy - our windows were just shutters with lots of bird poop outside! - Wifi is not free, but I think there's free wifi outside on the streets.
